Kiddie Snack: Lime in the Coconut Smoothie

If you just happen to have unsweetened coconut milk and shredded coconut collecting dust in your kitchen like I did, then this is the perfect smoothie for you or your kiddo. Or, if you just love the flavor combo of lime & coconut, then this smoothie is for you.

It’s no secret that M loves her smoothies, so any chance I get I try to make her one. This one is super simple to make.

All you need is at least one lime, vanilla yogurt, unsweetened lite coconut milk, shredded coconut, honey, and ice cubes.

Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

This recipe makes the perfect little kiddie portion. You can double the recipe for a larger one.

Lime in the Coconut Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened lite coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 cup of ice (more depending of the thickness you like)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Serve in a cute cup & enjoy 🙂

    It’s super cute to see M. putting the ingredients into the food processor. My niece waits for me to measure out the ingredients, but she has to be the one to drop them into the mixing bowl. <3 kids and food.

    I should make smoothies for the kids more often. I never think to do that. This looks delicious!

    That sounds yummy! I just happen to have some coconut milk leftover from the dinner I made tonight, too. I bet my boys would love this for a snack later.
